CNN reports that rumors of al Qaeda’s demise — which have been spread by President Obama and the Democrats — have been greatly exaggerated.

Washington (CNN) – A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.

U.S. officials won’t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States.

In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda’s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has said he wants to attack the United States. But in the video, he looks unconcerned that he could be hit by an American drone.

All the US domestic spying and electronic monitoring did not help.

Here is the video. It was recently taken in Yemen, where US drones have taken out several al Qaeda terrorists over the past few years.

Too bad the NSA computers are so choked up with domestic info sifting for the proverbial needle in a haystack here at home to find this haystack in a hayfield in Yemen. Low hanging fruit for sure.

Opportunity missed? Or opportunity ignored? You decide.

To be fair to Dear Liar, they aren't Tea Partiers, so they are a lower priority. One has to figure who's an enemy and who's just an inconvenience.

Obama didn't send drones?

Must not have been any Americans in attendance.

They ARE on the run. Why, everywhere you look...they're over there, there over here...we have them running anywhere in the world at will.

If one makes a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood, one does not bomb their military wing. Right?

How many days until the next massive storm inside America with Tornadoes. Perhaps, an earthquake. Duck and cover.

Time for the "Red Line Brigade" of Barry and Kerry to come out and consider issuing a possible warning that there might be a meeting to discuss the idea of consequences...or at least remind Al Qaeda that they are on the wrong side of history.

But GM Lives! Just not the drivers of their vehicles.

Once again, Jolting Joe Biden got it ass backwards.

Look at 0bama's success in Detroit. Imagine how much worse that city would be if it weren't for 0bama.

The reason they were able to congregate so brazenly? The reason the NSA didn't know?

Two words.

Edward Snowden.

You're dead wrong, socabill. The reason is a perverted lack of interest in prosecuting the fight against al Qaeda by 0bama and his administration.

The damage done to our freedom by the NSA far outweighs any damage done to our intelligence operations. Freedom comes first, socabill.

You're probably too young to remember this phrase from Legacy America, but it goes like this - It is better that 10 guilty men should go free than for 1 innocent man go to jail.

I know that's not being taught to your generation, but mine understood it.

But I'm sure there's a drone circling over Bundy's ranch right now.
